Maximizing Your Impact

Women Business Leaders Conference
October 19, 2022 l 10:00 AM-2:15 PM

Women of Color Business Summit

When women, especially Black and Latinx women, are successful everyone wins. As local economies and businesses begin to recover from the downturn attributed to the pandemic, it is time we acknowledge women’s substantial roles in building, growing, and sustaining their communities through business. We know that when women succeed, communities are changed for the better—jobs are created and opportunity is extended to marginalized communities, tax income is generated for municipalities, and women become more civically engaged, leading to more representation in government. With 70% of households in communities of color being run by women, it is even more important we help women of color succeed. This year, CWE invites you to learn how to maximize your impact and transform your community.

CWE’s Virtual Women Business Leaders Conference featuring the Women of Color Business Summit is the premier event for women in business, bringing together more than 350 women business leaders, owners, entrepreneurs, community leaders, supplier diversity teams, and purchasing professionals.

Women of Color Business Summit

October 20, 2022 | 10:00 AM-2:15 PM

The Women of Color Business Summit was established to focus on the development, success, and highlights of women of color entrepreneurs and business leaders, who have been most impacted by COVID-19. Developed by and for women of color, the summit provides a space and opportunity to address the unique challenges, concerns, and issues facing one of today’s fastest-growing--yet least supported--groups of entrepreneurs and business leaders. Our goal is to leave attendees with expanded networks and practical tools to help them succeed in their business endeavors and strengthen their communities.
